    Sport and the Sacred Victim: René Girard and the Death of Phillip Hughes.Scott Cowdell - 2015 - Contagion: Journal of Violence, Mimesis, and Culture 22:133-139.
    The fatal on-field head injury and subsequent death in Sydney of 25-year-old professional cricketer Phillip Hughes has led to an exceptional outpouring of shock and grief throughout Australia, the cricketing world, and beyond. It was not just one more death. Not even the particular poignancy of a promising young life cut brutally short can account for the reaction.There were heartfelt tributes from players, prime ministers, and presidents. Parliament observed a minute’s silence. The Queen sent a private message to Hughes’s parents. (...)

    Mimetic Euphemism and Mythology: Group Therapy, Scapegoating, and the Displacement of Disquiet.Bruce A. Stevens & Scott Cowdell - 2017 - Contagion: Journal of Violence, Mimesis, and Culture 24:37-56.
    Mimetic theory draws support from diverse disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. But arguably Girard would have even more influence if his theory had stronger life data, and one field well positioned to provide such input is psychology. Girard distinguished his thinking from Freud, while critiquing the psychoanalytic tradition more generally, in Book III of Things Hidden since the Foundation of the World1—a work taking the form of an extended dialogue with two psychiatrists. One of these, Jean-Michel Oughourlian, has (...)

  8. Rene Girard and Secular Modernity: Christ, Culture, and Crisis.Scott Cowdell - 2013 - University of Notre Dame Press.
    In _René Girard and Secular Modernity: Christ, Culture, and Crisis_, Scott Cowdell provides the first systematic interpretation of René Girard’s controversial approach to secular modernity. Cowdell identifies the scope, development, and implications of Girard’s thought, the centrality of Christ in Girard's thinking, and, in particular, Girard's distinctive take on the uniqueness and finality of Christ in terms of his impact on Western culture. In Girard’s singular vision, according to Cowdell, secular modernity has emerged thanks to the Bible’s exposure of the (...)
